If you grew up being hit by your parents, this may be good news for you.

But if you were never hit and feel lost in life, this article might explain to you why. Well, sort of.

Before you go find a cane to hit your kids for no reason, read on because it’s not just aimlessly punishing your kids.

Study About Growing Up with Canes

In a report by Fox News, a study has found that children who were spanked while growing up were “happier” and “more successful” than those who weren’t.

The research shows that children tend to perform better in school if they were spanked till they’re six years old.

They are also more likely to volunteer and have the desire to attend university, as compared to those that were not disciplined physically.

But hold your horses, because there’s a limit to discipline.

If children were spanked till their teenage years, they showed obvious “behavioral problems”.

Times of London said that there were efforts to ban parental physical punishment.

The action was claimed to cause harm to children in the long run. Banning it would indicate zero-tolerance towards violence.

On the other hand, Marjorie Gunnoe, a professor of psychology, claimed that a study that she has done shows a lack of evidence to take away the freedom parents have to discipline their own children in their own ways.
